A sequence-length sensitive approach to learning biological grammars using inductive logic programming. (2011)
Thesis
MAMER, T. 2011. A sequence-length sensitive approach to learning biological grammars using inductive logic programming. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

This thesis aims to investigate if the ideas behind compression principles, such as the Minimum Description Length, can help us to improve the process of learning biological grammars from protein sequences using Inductive Logic Programming (ILP). Con... Read More about A sequence-length sensitive approach to learning biological grammars using inductive logic programming..

An inductive logic programming approach to learning which uORFs regulate gene expression. (2008)
Thesis
SELPI 2008. An inductive logic programming approach to learning which uORFs regulate gene expression. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Some upstream open reading frames (uORFs) regulate gene expression (i.e. they are functional) and can play key roles in keeping organisms healthy. However, how uORFs are involved in gene regulation is not het fully understood. In order to get a compl...
